Gluten and Wheat Sensitivities

When the body is sensitive to certain foods, there are some common symptoms to be aware of, which typically present themselves within a couple of hours. If you have symptoms on a daily basis, then start paying attention to what you regularly eat.

Some people have gut symptoms when eating foods with ingredients containing gluten, ie wheat, barley and rye, even if they don’t have coeliac disease. This is sometimes called non-coeliac gluten sensitivity.

The symptoms of non-coeliac gluten sensitivity may be similar to those experienced by many people Digestive complaints and symptoms such as:

  • Neurological problems – like severe headaches and migraines
  • Skin issues – most commonly eczema, acne, itchiness and rashes
  • Tiredness and fatigue – a lack of energy, “brain fog” or lethargy

Even mild sensitivities can have a huge impact on a person’s day to day performance.
